spending. that means medicare, medicaid, social security, especially as the baby boom population retires. those numbers are will go right on you. this commission idea was intended to get at those entitlements and to get at the tax revenue to help close that gap of one third. and in order to be effective, it needed teeth. what the congress did today was to take the teeth out of it. that is not only a setback here, but will cause a lot of our foreign creditors to question are we going to pay our bills, or will we be forced to start raising interest rates? that would be very dangerous indeed. >> yeah, because the only other option is to raise taxes. there's not a great appetite to do that. if you're not going after the social security, medicare, medicaid or defense spending, which is sort of eliminated, that's where most of the money is. >> that's what willie sutton would say. he would have to go after entitlements, because that's where the money is, and that's why you rob banks, as he said, that's where the money was. i must tell you, on the eve of the president's state of the union addres

revenue to support thatd fund that. >> they cut $500 billion from medicare. they also need lots of new revenue. the house would raise it by imposing a 5.4% you are fax with those are gross income of $500,000 or more. the senate raises the biggest chunk of its revenues through a 40% tax on so-called cadillac plans. >> this is an obvious place to do it. it's the largest untaxed fringe benefit in the u.s. tax code. >> obama advisers say the benefits like the ones wall street bankers enjoy, but the vast majority are union members and state government employees. martha: what happens to these plans when you put a 40% tax on them. >> many of those plans will get too expensive and slowly disappear. but there is a bigger result, this will result in larger tax bills for middle class families. the reason is because if those union members lose healthcare benefits which are untaxable, the senate is assuming they will get wages to replace that which are taxable. the senate is counting on raising $160 billion in new taxes over 10 years, the majority of which would come from the middle class. listen t

to expand the medicare rules, including other demands on the states. you're a governor. do you understand what he's saying? >> david, i do, but i've looked at this very carefully in connection with the virginia budget. and i think what is often missed is that there's going to be some cost to states to expand medicaid, but then that will take huge financial burdens out of state budgets that we're incurring right now to take care of those who are uninsured. virginia is an example. we have over 1.2 million virginiane virginians that are uninsured. and we spend hundreds of millions every year to take care of them in emergency rooms for serious emergency treatment that could have been prevented under this health reform bill. for example, preventative care is no copay. we're going to move towards prevention. state budgets will save dollars now from pull people back from the brink of sickness that they needn't been suffering under. i think virginia stands to benefit, much do other american states, from finally passing meaningful health care reform. >> chairman steele, do you think it will help r

people get what they pay for, strengthening medicare, making sure we're lowering health care costs for small businesses and individuals. we're going to make sure we move forward on a jobs bill, financial services reform, holding the banks accountable, all of the things that need to get done. but right now, given the rules of the senate, they can actually stop everything. and so we'll see. we will see. and i am -- all i can say is i'm hopeful that colleagues that we've been able to work with in the past will come forward and work with us. because too many people in this country are hurting. and we're going to continue to fight for them. and i have to tell you, coming from the great state of michigan, nobody is hurting more than the folks in my state. and i'm going to continue to fight for that agenda for them. and, hopefully, we're going to be able to move this forward. >> democratic senator debbie stabenow of michigan, thank you for your time tonight. i appreciate your optimism about the republicans potentially turning around on this. if they don't, we'd love to have you back for c
